Charity support and volunteerism is an important part of CDL. For the first time, CDL sponsored and participated in the 2019 Back to School Bash. In addition, for the fourth time in a row, CDL has been one of the top fundraisers for the Palm Beach and Treasure Coast chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
CDL participated in the 2019 Back to School Bash on Saturday, July 27 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. The Firm was a sponsor of Friends of Foster Children of Palm Beach County, a leading coordinator of this year’s Bash. More than 20 CDL team members, family and friends volunteered at the school supply giveaway to benefit foster children and low-income families.
Approximately 17,000 children from grades kindergarten through 12th grade, came to the Convention Center and two other locations in Palm Beach County, to receive new backpacks, paper, pens, notebooks, etc.
Keith Pence helped raise more than $15,800 for the Palm Beach County chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and their “Executive Challenge Class of 2018.” Keith joined the ranks of ten honorees in Palm Beach County and 290 honorees nationwide, with a name listing and recognition in the March 2019 issue of Forbes Magazine.
The Light the Night Executive Challenge is a national fundraising competition for corporate executives to raise funds for LLS. In total, Keith and the Firm have donated more than $129,000 to LLS and its fight against blood cancers over the last four years.
The 2019 Light the Night Walk will be held on Friday, Nov. 22 at the FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches. Team CDL will be participating.
